We met the first year of college in math class. I always dredded math and did not want to go but obviously I had to. We sat one seat away from each other and for the first couple of days of class, we, unknowingly to each other, would purposely meet up in the parking lot after class at the exact same time, hold the door for each other, etc. Then Whitney started getting help in math from this guy I wan to high school with. So, I contacted him one day and started to ask about her and he flipped out and told her I was interested. The next day after class, we met in the parking lot and they invited me to lunch and the rest is history and we have been together for over five and a half years. We knew from about the first month of dating that we wanted to be together forever and we exchanged rings, the ones we stil have today. It wasn’t until about two years ago right before we left Florida to move to Seattle that we were having a “going away” party with all of our closest friends when she proposed to me. The whole time it was never a going away party but a proposal party and I wouldn’t have had it any other way than to celebrate with our friends. So, once we got to Seattle, marriage became legal and that is when we decided to get married since we finally could and here we are today.
This photo session was not actually an engagement session. It was a few hours before their wedding ceremony on their wedding day! They had two outfits for the day. One for this part which was a Bonnie and Clyde themed shoot. We were lucky enough to get our hands on some pre-prohibition metal beer signs and a newspaper set in the prohibition era! Thank you Sherlynn and Batch 19 for hooking us up! Batch 19 is served at local pubs and sports bars. It’s getting so popular they can’t keep it in stock! Go check it out.
Anyway, Shadoe and Whitney played their “tough outlaw” roles Perfectly! They are both so beautiful and their photos came out so super cool. I’m glad they came up with this idea and followed through with it. I love their creativity!
ps. small part foul on Whitney’s red watch but Bonnie and Clyde were very fashionable so we think they’ll be ok with it. Let’s call it fashion forward…very far forward! We shot this whole shoot in 20 minutes before we were chased off of the property (sorta but that’s another story ;).
